Black women dating younger men

When I was young and looked at people whose age I am now, I often wondered if their perception of themselves changed when they looked in the mirror, or if they still had the young mind in an older body.As you get older, the media is telling you what "women of a certain age" can or can't do.

There's no reason to keep yourself from a potentially amazing relationship, just because society tells you it's weird.

We're all a little weird, and love is beautiful, so that's pretty darn cool if you ask me.

Dating a guy my age would be a unique experience for me -- and it's one I'm excited to pursue.

Maybe the idea of growing with someone is exciting.

I once got with a 37-year-old who had absolutely no idea what he was doing down there.
